Audio Books

I have to tell you I love being read to.  Since no one in their right mind would follow me around all day to read me a good book, I have come to rely on audio books. This love started with my parents reading to me when I was young.  At the Lincoln Public Library back in the seventies, I could put on huge headphones and listen to Peter Rabbit all day long.

A Story and a Recipe

By Dorothy Johnson

 

One of my friends told me she had tried my Cabbage and Kielbasa recipe and did not like it very much.  I asked her if she generally liked cabbage and she said, “No.”  I guess if readers do not like the ingredients to begin with, maybe putting them in a recipe will not change that.  I still stand by that recipe.
